My Stage Two is up....

 

If I can offer a personal opinion that isn't already covered or answer any questions... Hit me up.

 

Great job Scott!     I picked up a dozen reds and I'm having good success with them.  Now I plan to try the blacks .

Yeah I want to give the Blacks a shot as well. But the Reds are pretty great for me.

I played them with a new Mizuno ST180 this week I borrowed from a friend who is a demo rep and was playing with me. The combo was perfect. Just perfect. I averaged 20 years longer with great dispersion over my 10+ year old Mizzy.

Damn, now I need a new long stick.

Fountain of a driver 10 years newer. I have an old Mizzy MX500. The St180 is just better for me.

Snell MTB Red – Official MGS Forum Review by MaxEntropy

 

 

Conclusion

 

Overall, I was very pleased with the performance of the Snell MTB Red. It was every bit as long as the Titleist NXT Tour S, with initial results suggesting it might be even a few yards longer off the driver. I saw very little difference in the performance off full iron shots and with a putter. Where I believe the Snell performed extremely well was chipping and pitching. I was very impressed with the stopping ability of the Snell on these shots. Being a golfer who usually does not get much spin, I believe the ability to spin these short shots will help my game, in the long run, because I will have more shot options available to me. If you are the type of golfer that struggles to stop the ball in your short game, you need to try this ball. The only downside I found with this ball is the firm sound on short shots. I am still not quite used to the sound as it reminds me of historically low grade balls (Top Flite, Pinnacle, etc.). Due to the performance, I am willing to get used to the sound.

 

Final Score: 86.

 

Great job!  Very through and it's obvious you put a lot of effort into your review.

Yes it was. All my rounds were either Mud Run (18) or Raccoon Hills (27)

So I spent the weekend at a member guest tournament playing my OG Snell MTB's (I mismanaged my stock of Reds). They were just as good as they used to be, but not as good as the Reds have been to me. The OG approach shots were not as sticky as I wanted them to be. They certainly stopped but didn't seem to have the few feet of draw back with a proper strike I had seen with the Reds. They also didn't seem to be as tough and showed a bit more wear than the Reds had.

I think I am gonna get a couple boxes of Blacks started this way and see how they treat me. I am tempted to just keep with Red, but I am going to give the Black Snells a proper go.

Great work pal. Thoroughly enjoyed the video content.

 

 

Everyone else, be on the lookout! The rest of the stage 2 reviews should be trickling in very soon.

 

This is a cool review because there's so many reviewers with different opinions on the balls. Add that to all the non-testers with personal experiences to share and this thread has some serious value for those in the ball market.

 

Thumbs up y'all
